Exploration Update

Drilling is proceeding at the Maskwa North Horizon. Two holes have been completed spaced 200 meters apart. A zone of disseminated mineralization has been intersected in each hole with varying amounts of chalcopyrite, sphalerite, pyrrhotite, pyrite and arsenopyrite. Mineralization is located at a sheared peridotite volcanic contact and a granite ultramafic contact. The zone of mineralization has been intersected between 600-725 ft downhole in the two holes. The initial phase of the drill program will test the Maskwa North horizon along a 1,000 meters strike length approximately parallel to the proposed pit shell for the Maskwa Deposit.
